Seat Belt Guides 1978

Postby mikebrow74 » Mon Jul 23, 2018 11:21 pm

To my recollection, my new 1978 Monza Spyder that I purchased new had square seat belt guides. It had black vinyl seats with the honeycomb insert. I'm seeing the triangular guides are more common and plentiful. Can anyone confirm I should have the square seat belt guides for my 78 project?

My 75 has square ones, I believe those would be correct for your car

Thanks Clyde, trying hard to keep it a correct and accurate restoration.

The 1978 Monza brochure appears to agree:

I wonder what year they switched over to the triangular style? My 1980 sunbird has had the triangular seat belt guides since I got it in 1987.
